7:01 am
>> u.s. officials face the threat of a large-scale terror attack. >> 19 diplomatic posts in the middle east and north africa remains closed through saturday. >> there's been an awful lot of chatter out there. >> high-level people from al qaeda are talking about a major attack. >> and global travel alert will remain in effect for americans traveling overseas. >> basically could be in europe it could be in the united states, it could be a series of combined attacks? today, we're expecting to hear from major league baseball about the suspension of rodriguez and several other big leaders. >> for allegedly using performance enhancing drugs. >> a driver is under arrest facing murder charges after a clou car plows into a crowd at the venice beach board walk. >> he was looking for blood. >> flooding in eastern kansas washing out roads and bridges. >> i'm just asking why are you

7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning and welcome back. >> thank you. we have intelligence agencies on high alert this morning. >> in 19 middle east and african nations remain closed this morning, staying closed until saturday. >> scrambling to uncover the details of an al qaeda plan that could spark the most serious terror attack in years. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning. >> good morning to our viewers in the west. sources say a major al qaeda plot now is in its final stages of planning. and terror operatives have already been dispatched. we still don't know the time date or target of any attack but analysts are scrambling to fill in those intelligence gaps. the threat comes from al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. the same terror franchise that's tried to bring down u.s.-bound jetliners with explosion ins hid inexplosives hidden in underwear. sources say in recent days intelligence agents have intercepted the communications
7:04 am
of senior al qaeda leaders. >> there's been an awful lot of chatter out there. chatter means conversation among terrorists about the planning that's going on. very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11. >> reporter: sources say that chatter indicates a large-scale attack may be imminent. and al qaeda terrorists already have their orders. >> because of the level of chatter, it seeps s seems to be a fairly large operation. >> reporter: officials say it is the most specific and credible threat we've faced in years. while the intelligence is incomplete, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey, warns the threat is real. >> it is more specific and we are taking it seriously. which i think you'd expect us to do. yes, there is a significant threat steam and we're reacting to it. >> reporter: president obama who
7:05 am
arrived home sunday from camp david received regular briefings all weekend from his security team. u.s. embassies and consulates were shut down sunday primarily in muslim countries from africa to south asia. officials are fully aware it was 15 years ago this week al qaeda bombed two u.s. embassies in east africa. and just last september islamic extremists killed four americans in attacks on two u.s. facilities in benghazi. now, in addition to the chatter, there are other factors also suggesting an attack could be coming. a u.s. drone strike recently killed a deputy commander of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. the group openly vowed revenge. just in the past week, the leader of al qaeda publicly called for new attacks on american. charlie, norah. >> bob thanks. national security analyst juan zarate is with us. he served for president george bush. good morning. we know it's both specific and vague. we know it sounds like the chatter before 9/11.
7:06 am
what is the president getting? what kind of information and what kind of options does he have? >> the president first and foremost will want to know what information we've gotten overnight and over the weekend. intelligence officials and sources are pulsing the system. getting not only their sources but friends and alleyi'llallyies, try to gather as much information. my sources tell me there isn't that much that's new. the president may hear some updates but maybe not that much new. he'll get some updates. >> what's interesting is they say the operatives already dispatched. >> that's right. this is reminiscent the plot in 2010. you recall there was a plot to attack europe sites. people were worried about mumbai-style attacks coming from the al qaeda core. it never materialized. but officials were worried that they actually had operatives in place. that's great concern here. >> this is about al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, in yemen. and the chief bomb maker is
7:07 am
ibrahim al asiri, right? >> that's right. >> how concerned are they now about surgically implanted bombs being used? >> they're worried about all sorts of innovations coming from al asiri. he's not only a master bomb maker but he's innovative. you've seen the plots that have targeted the united states the best innovation we've seen in term, of bomb making yet. so the concern is not only do you have that innovation but you have techniques perhaps like surgically inserted bombs at play in this plot. >> most of the information comes from the nsa. >> well some of it does. some of it i think is going to come from human sources. certainly the indications initially came from intercepts. >> the obama administration has told us repeatedly they have decapitated the head of the snake of al qaeda. and now we have the most significant threat perhaps since 9/11. >> the problem, norah, is the obama administration has largely
7:08 am
talked about that decimation of al qaeda in terms of the core. the group in pakistan and afghanistan led by bin laden and zawahiri. the problem is you've had the rise of the al qaeda affiliates. groups in yemen. east africa. those groups have taken up the strategic and operational mantle for al qaeda. the group is yemen has been the most dangerous because they want to hit the united states. >> juan, good to see you. major league baseball expected to announce today it is suspends yankees superstar alex rodriguez. tonight, a-rod is scheduled to suit up for the first time this season. don dahler is at u.s. cellular field in chicago. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. the suspension expected to last through the 2014 season according to cbssports.com. a-rod has been side lined because of injuries. but he says he's going to play here in the windy city tonight no matter what. >> yeah i'm playing in chicago.
7:09 am
i'm fine in chicago. >> reporter: despite the looming suspension over his alleged connection to baseball's steroid scandal, he sounded optimistic after his final rehab game in the minors. >> i can't wait to see my teammates. i feel like i can help us win. i can help us be a better team. i haven't seen a lot of my brothers in a long time. >> reporter: while sources say the league has threatened a lifetime ban against the three-time mvp, a suspension is more likely. as many as a dozen others are facing penalties but a-rod's is expected to be the toughest. a-rod said he was being singled out. is he? >> well, yes, he is. now, the question isn't whether he is being singled out, the question is is he being unfairly singleled out? because he's being asked to serve a suspension far longer than anyone else not only in this case but anyone else in any drug case in baseball history. >> reporter: beyond the damage to his legacy baseball's
7:10 am
highest paid player also stands to lose more than $30 million in salary. he's expected to appeal any punishment and depending on whether the league suspends him, citing drug use or the alleged obstruction of the investigation, a-rod will be allowed to play in the meantime. so we could see him in the yankees lineup tonight. >> he's in there, i'm going to play. that's the latest situation. as i said you'll probably hear about everything before i will. >> reporter: we expect to hear something about two hours from now, at 9:00 a.m. pacific time. charlie, norah. >> thank you, don. investigators have morning are trying to learn why a driver ran his car into a crowd of people along venice's famed boardwalk. john blackstone is in venice. >> reporter: this venice boardwalk is usually a bustling destination for tourists and locals who come to shop and eat. it was crowded on saturday
7:11 am
evening when a driver slammed into the crowd killing one woman and injuring 11 others. we want to warn you the surveillance video you're about to see is graphic and may be disturbing. as you'll see in the top left-hand corner of the screen a surveillance camera captured the moment a driver deliberately mowed down pedestrians. >> we thought it was a movie. and then the guy just started barreling down. people started screaming. we just parted like the red sea. >> horrific. there were people flying everywhere. it looked like something out of a movie. >> it was incredible. i've never seen anything like it. >> reporter: john was on vacation. he watched in horror as the driver plowed through people for 100 yards. >> he took out the two people working the tend and he hit the woman that was shopping the tent and he knocked her up on the hood and then he went over across the promenade there and he hit two more vendors.
7:12 am
and then he drove his car all the way down and kept hitting people all the way down. >> reporter: he told cbs news the driver appeared to aim for people. >> i believe he was from what i saw. i cannot speak into what was in his frame of mind but i'm telling you what i saw. people moved out of the way and he drove to hit them. >> reporter: just moments before the rampage, surveillance video captured the suspect, 38-year-old nathan campbell stopping and surveying the boardwalk before climbing back into his car and accelerating toward the crowd. 32-year-old elichi of italy was killed. her husband escaped with minor injuries. the driver is in police custody. >> he took out innocent people. there was no reason for him to do that. >> reporter: nathan campbell fled the scene but then later saturday night turned himself into authorities. he's been booked on murder and is being held on $1 million bail. the "l.a. times" reports this morning that he may be a

7:14 am
putin is to seem to poke us in the eye. whether it's in iran in syria, now with snowed bedensnowden. i would urge the president not to go forward with the bilateral meeting next month. that would give putin the kind of respect he doesn't deserve at this point in typeime. >> this is a stab in the back. i actually agree with senator schumer, that has to come with consequences. i think the administration should proceed just like we discussed. >> schumer says relations with russia are more poisonous now than at any time since the cold war. >> signs iran may be ready to engage in serious talks about its nuclear program. the country's new president saying he wants to reduce aggression. he has the backing of iran's supreme leader. >> reporter: in spite a battered economy and galloping inflation, iranians are filled with anticipation as they prepare for
7:15 am
a brand-new chapter in their political history. with a dash of pomp iran's new president took the oath of office and laid out his vision for an administration based on dialogue and prudence. it's already clear that hassan houhani will be a very different leader than his presentedpredecessor. by contrast rouhani, a cleric who studied law in britain, is a moderate reformer. he's also says his health policy adviser, a pragmatic and broad-minded diplomat. do you think he would even seek direct talks with the united states? >> actually personally for myself, i hope so but it needs time. >> reporter: rouhani was the surprise winner of the presidential election back in
7:16 am
june when he captured a significant share of the youth vote. now he's got to deliver on his election promises. first and foremost reviving the economy. iranians are having a hard time making ends meet as international sanctions, brought on by iran's nuclear program, are effectively choking off the country's income. on the campaign trial, rouhani vowed to improve living conditions. the only way to do that is to get sanctions lifted by coming to the nuclear negotiateing table prepared to compromise when talks resume later this fall. two of president rouhani's initial main appointments may be real indicators that his government will be seeking constructive dialogue with the west. his foreign ministry and his chief of staff are both men who not only graduated from american universities but who spent significant amounts of time in the united states. for cbs this morning, i'm elizabeth palmer in tehran. more than 100 families are

already there. it's worth noting al qaeda has hit europe in the past u.s. in the past. officials say they would do that again if they could. one other thing. embassies are prime targets because they are symbols of the west. so, too, is aviation. as we know al qaeda has shown a continuing interest in attacking u.s.-bound airplanes. >> thanks bob. >> bob orr, we thank you. yankees slugger alex rodriguez is about to take a big hit. cbssports.com says he will be suspended through next season for using performance enhancing drugs. that is the heaviest punishment by far as baseball officials plan to sideline up to a dozen players. rodriguez is going to appeal and he expects to play for the yankees tonight in chicago. >> misty franklin became a swimming star last year winning four gold medals at the olympics. the 18-year-old from colorado did better this past week in barcelona, spain. she became the first woman to win six events at the championships. one competitive calls her wonder woman with a cape. franklin says i have a lot of

8:14 am
worse time. it's like an instrument, the acting tool. it's like laying down an instrument if you haven't picked up a piano, a trombone in 15 years, you put it in the corner. i had given up the idea of acting because i just thought the day job and complications of trying to figure out somebody who could do a movie at the same time i was also working, i just sort of let that go. >> you said you just didn't want to be embarrassed. >> lee was like listen i wrote this for you. danny strong and i wrote this for you. you have to say yes. i ended up saying yes because of the story. >> acting is tough and you've got some tough things to deliver here. >> yeah, yeah yeah. i was really nervous about it. so i actually called in an acting coach. >> for the first time. >> for the first time. susan batson said to me i think you have the ability to access it because you still are far more vulnerable. i called her because i had trouble crying. can you believe that?
8:15 am
>> no. >> trouble crying if you ask me to do it on cue. after 20 minutes of, you know bawling on the sofa she said you've still got vulnerable spaces so you can go in and access that. >> oprah, i had no trouble crying during this movie. it's so emotionally riveting. obviously there's great acting but the story -- >> thank you. >> one, lets talk about the story. it is about the butler. it's a real life story of eugene allen, who served eight presidents. you in the movie play the wife gloria gains. why is this story so important. >> i think the women of the civil rights movement the women who stood by their men, the women who had to suppress their own heart's desire ambition because the world saw you in this box, i think they played a vital and essential role to the movement but nobody ever talks about them. i think that entire era of women
8:16 am
deserves not just applause but deserves to be celebrated and honored. also at the time, before i started working, i thought, it's just the wife. it won't take that long. then i realize every line to do three lines is essential. it took a lot more work than i thought at the time. but the ability to tell that story so that the generation our generation it affirms what we already know about history. but there's a whole generation that will now have an opportunity to be exposed to it. it's so amazing. >> education for a lot of people. >> you get all the connections. >> it's a drama, a history lesson and it is a love story. the thing is i speak at a lot of schools you speak at a lot of schools, when i have a time. i came to see martin luther king was just a speech for kids. i have a dream, they get up and recite it. they had no idea what that meant, the context of what that meant. this offers a great opportunity
8:17 am
for kids. >> i'm not saying you're hard to direct but lee daniels did say you asked a whole lot of questions during the set. >> yes. first of all -- >> you wanted to know details. >> i wanted to know he was speaking specifically when there was a love scene, we were in bed together, i wanted to know what time of day is it? is it morning sex, afternoon, evening? >> they are all different. >> this has been going on two minutes and now you've gotten to our favorite subject on the show. we touch on it every single day. >> nobody ever thinks about that. >> we grab it. >> you do. if you're in bed, don't you want to know what time it is. what's going on depends on do i have to get up? that's what i'm thinking. >> this is not about the butler the backdrop is the civil rights, it's about a love story. >> oh, my god, can we talk about forest whitaker. >> as i said through the roof
8:18 am
and even better. >> through the roof. when i first saw the film roger ebert told me years ago when i did "the color purple" don't look at it for five years because you can't see yourself which is true. you can't see yourself. when i finished the film for the first time what i saw and felt was that forest was able to invoke the soul of not just eugene allen but every man in the era. >> everybody cries at different points for different reasons. there was something released about barbara bush. she had seen it and she cried. people cried at different times. it was forest. >> he had dignity, the man. >> what about the scene. >> we both love that it's our favorite scene. he goes in and knows the guy is going to say if it's a choice of doing what you ask me to do and not, you can leave. he reminds him i've already told the president this is what you might say and the president said
8:19 am
he'd like to talk to you first. >> this is the context asking the butlers -- the black butlers were paid less than white butlers in the white house. >> what's remarkable about this film it indicates there are two different ways or multiple ways to protest. for the father of that generation and that period that was major for him. think about how long it would take him to go in and ask for money and the risk he would take. he could be fire. that was his way of being a warrior. for the son there was another way. the truth is, both ways were right. that's what this movie is about. >> we're up against a hard wall. the good news for us you've agreed to stick around. "lee daniels' the butler" opens august 16th. we'll get her thoughts on her life as she approaches her 60th birthday and look at the success of own. lots to talk about. that's ahead on cbs. by

8:31 am
paid $70 million for the 141-year-old paper. it was tnlt highest but it was all cash. it was enough to convince the current owner "the new york times" to sell. few automakers have eliminated the cd players, but in some new models the players are hidden away that's because people still own sacks. "jeopardy" is under fire for a very controversial decision. seems a middle school student was on from newtown. he got the final answer correct, but he misspelled it and the judges ruled against it. no fair. he said he was proud to have been selected for the contestant of the show but he's no longer a fan. and "the des moines register" says the lottery jackpot had grown to $400
8:32 am
million. there was no grand price winner after saturday's drawing. it's the third largest power ball ever. the odds of winning, 1 in 275 million. >> how many tickets will you buy because if you win, they'll be so happy for you. >> i was thinking how many have you bought. >> i bought a couple. >> did you buy it for all the crew too? >> yes, i did. that was a surprise for the end of the show, but yes, i did. >> you read that well my dear. >> thank you. "the butler" opens on august 16 and even while filming she kept her network going. >> we just did that yesterday or the day before. >> as they say, own is rocketing forward, isn't it? >> yes. what a different story than when i was here last year. what a difference a year makes.
8:33 am
>> what did you do? >> what i did -- it's not at what i did -- well it is what i did and the team did. i -- you know when you are in a foxhole you have to surround yourself with people that can help lift you out. it was a huge climb and now we are having fun we're making money, we're really in the -- you know in the business and doing very well so i'm very happy about that thanks to my team. >> it really is a team. it really is it.. it takes a team to make a village. can we go back to lindsay lohan. some people are curling their lips up. >> including you. nothing like having gayle call and sigh what are you doing? >> she brought a list. thank you so much. you're welcome. >> and to the doubters you say what? >> i don't understand why people
8:34 am
are doubting. this is what i know. we're all on the same journey. people are taking different paths to get there. and think no matter how many times you fail you fall down in your life i mean you certainly have the opportunity until you take your last breath to be redeemed. so i'm in the business of interviewing people about their lives and so to sit and talk with her about where she is in her life and i did the other day and i felt that she was honor evident, that she was authentic, and that she is ready and i asked her what's the difference between now and all the other five times that you've been through rehab and part of the issue was those were all forced by the court, you know in order to stay out of jail. >> did you believe her this time and how was she? >> i believed her. she looked good she looked strong, she looked healthy. >> was she on time? >> not only was she on time but she was earlier than i was 20678 minutes early. and then we had another meeting with her yesterday and she was 20 minutes early. so i think sh is you know on
8:35 am
the way to at least working on it. >> she's talented. i'm pulling for her. >> i said i want her to women. >> this is a docu series. >> we're doing an eight-part d docu series. what it's like to put your life together when you're living in a fish bowl. i'll say this. i felt it when i interviewed justin bieber and all the years i was in the public eye. you would understand this too, being this the public eye. i don't know how do you this when you are a child. i asked her the question of -- you know she was making $7 million when she was 18 years old. >> who was guiding her? >> no one. so you're 17 years old, 18 years old with $7 million. that's an out-of-control waiting to happen. >> so in addition to own, in addition to a movie, you also have a magazine.
8:36 am
i really with my magazine hat i want to do it. >> do you think i could do the hair dodo hairdo? >> i wouldn't pay power ball money. >> they say oprah's always on the cover. >> i'm always trying. >> she's asked for five years, take me off the cover. >> not five. think since the fifth anniversary. >> here's the deal. you're back where you want to be? >> not where i want to be but -- >> there's the premiere issue. i look at that and crack up. >> you have this magazine and this great movie and you're approaching 60. >> can you believe that? the 6-0 number. i have said to people own it own it own it. gayle reminded me you're going to be 60 this year.
8:37 am
